I deleted every partition on my system, even the partition on my USB stick. Then I created a partition with SliTaz which I'm currently on. But then I found out that my USB stick didn't get discovered if I plug it in.
So I made a new NTFS partition (on the USB stick of course) with GParted. Now I wanted to boot into another Linux OS, so I downloaded the iso(kali-linux), then copied it to the drive. But now I can't make it bootable, when I use the "make bootable in a linux os" installation guide from kali-linux, which says, do
dd if=kali.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=512k (at first, the partition was at sdb1), and I got "no such file, directory"but I already renamed the file to kali.iso . Then I played around a bit and deleted again the usb partition and then made it an ext3 partition, FAT32 partition on finaly back to NTFS.
But nothing worked. When it was an ext3 partition and I wanted to copy files on the drive I got "permission denied"(but worked with root user in the console). But it never booted from the iso at startup. Now if I go into mountbox(SliTaz program for mounting), I get some weird things:
/dev/loop0p1 Hidden HPSF/NTFS Boot yes #What is loop0p1? /dev/sda1/ System: Linux /dev/loop1
/dev/root /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 30gb Mounted on: /media/disk-1 #(should be usb stick, but the mounted folder was different at the beginning) /dev/loop0 Mounted on: /media/cdrom read only
/dev/sda1 Filesystem: ext2 #(this is SliTaz, everything is fine here, I think)
and 218gb of free memory, not "located"
/dev/sdc #at the beginning it was
/dev/sdb I think, only sure that it was changed. :
/dev/sdc1 Filesystem NTFS Mountpoint: /media/disk-1 Size 30gb
fdisk -l is

If I use the SliTaz program to create a bootable USB stick I get: "unable to mount iso or to find a filesystem on it rootfs.gz"
So, how can I fix all this? How did this loop0 stuff come up and some letters changed down in the alphabet. And finally, how can I get my usb stick to be bootable with the iso?
Please no blame for kali-linux, I do tests and stuff on my own network or virtualised machines, and I like that many programming stuff that I use with python (gtk, pyside, scapy etc) is preinstalled there. My intention is to make a dualboot with Kali-Linux and SliTaz.
